Former Redskins fullback Darrel Young made the most of his mincamp appearance with the Chicago Bears, and has now been signed by the team, a source told CSN-Mid Atlantic on Wednesday.
The Villanova graduate spent seven years with the Redskins after going undrafted in 2009. Young, initially signed as a linebacker, evolved into a bruising yet graceful fullback.
He appeared in 69 games for the Redskins, scoring seven rushing touchdowns and six receiving touchdowns, including a 62-yard touchdown against the Eagles in Week 11 of the 2013 season.
Young played a pivotal role in the Redskins' rushing success in 2012, which saw the team lead the league in rushing. He served as the lead-blocker for rookie Alfred Morris, who set the franchise's single-season rushing record with 1,613 yards.
Young was released in March of 2016, staying busy by joining CSN Mid-Atlantic as a production assistant.
"You never know the plan that is in store for you in life," Young said to CSN Mid-Atlantic.
"But in the end, we all have a purpose."
